Brussels, July 19 (KMS): The Chairman of Kashmir Council European Union (KCEU) Ali Raza Syed has praised the European Parliament for issuing a fresh document on Kashmir dispute highlighting the human rights violations by Indian troops in occupied Kashmir.

The EU parliament issued the documents containing history of 70-year-old dispute of Kashmir, its damaging impact on development in South Asia, UN resolutions, struggle of Kashmiri people against the India rule and human rights violations by the Indian troops in occupied Kashmir.

In the context of human right, the European Parliament’s document specifically mentioned recent UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al-Hussein’s recent report who called to curb excessive use of force by the Indian forces, which has led to unlawful killings and a very high number of injuries.

Welcoming the European parliament document, the KCEU Chairman, Ali Raza Syed in a statement in Brussels said, there should be an international investigation into human rights violations in occupied Kashmir especially EU should play its role for prevention of the violations. All the criminals involved in human rights violations in Kashmir should also be tried through the international court of law, he maintained.

He said the international investigation into severe violence in occupied Kashmir was a long-lasting demand of the people of Kashmir and for that the struggle of people working for protection of human rights in Kashmir including Pervaiz Imroz Advocate is appreciable.

The KCEU Chairman also lauded the work of European personalities and human rights organisations including Ms Marjan Locus for highlighting the Kashmir dispute. He also appreciated many of the MEPs including Dr Sajjad Karim for their long standing support to the Kashmir cause.

Ali Raza Syed called for an amicable settlement of the Kashmir dispute through meaningful dialogue that also involves the people of Kashmir.

It is important to mention that the United Nations in its first-ever human rights report on Jammu and Kashmir last month had called for an urgent need to address past and ongoing human rights violations and abuses and deliver justice to all people in Kashmir.
